Did they plant anything in it? Looks like a square full of grass to me.

I would like a close-up cam too

If you click on the "8pm" time under the cam pic, you can just see a variety of leaves and flowers.

But here's what it's about:

This view of our backyard in Dublin, New Hampshire shows The John Pierce Memorial Garden, watched over by a maple tree. The garden was dedicated in August 2008 to our long-time editor, publisher, and friend, John Pierce.

The garden was first created as an Old Farmer's Almanac Anniversary Garden in 1992 to celebrate 200 years of publishing the Almanac. The flowers and herbs that were planted were beloved by gardeners 200 years ago.

Some of the many flowers and herbs in our garden are: hollyhock, rose, tansy, daylily, blue bell, peony, false indigo, wormwood, speedwell, candytuft, columbine, lupine, chives, thyme, lavender, spearmint, and rosemary.

These early "parlor" gardens were always fenced, both to maintain privacy and to keep out animals. There was almost always a gate at the entrance, and the paths were usually surfaced with gravel or (near the coast) with clamshells.
